Leo is a London-based freelance journalist who specialises in travel and wellness. She's sailed across Malawi in a catamaran, ridden horseback across Iceland and been spun like a salad leaf at Spaceport America in New Mexico. She's interviewed a colourful array of characters from Hollywood Oscar-winners to rock 'n' roll fashion designers, and spends a significant portion of every assignment face down in the spa.


Publications she contributes to include Tatler, Brides, House & Garden, Quintessentially, Porter and Sunseeker.

In an online capacity, Leo writes for Telegraph Ultratravel, The Arbuturian, The Luxury Spa Edit and Little London. She is also a UK correspondent for the online travel & tech publication Click.


A regular face at Vogue House for her writing and editing services, she also has a broad copywriting client base including Ogilvy & Mather Advertising, Condé Nast Digital, Kids Industries and One Luxury Marketing.​

Leo has a Post-Graduate Diploma in periodical journalism from City University and is a member of the NUJ. She started her journalism career at The Fulham Chronicle newspaper and went on to work as an entertainment editor at BBC Worldwide. In 2004, she went freelance and moved to Los Angeles, filing copy to Grazia, Marie Claire, Total Film and The Sunday Times, and sharing her misadventures in a column for TV Hits magazine entitled 'I Love LA'. Leo returned to London in 2006 to explore new pastures in wellness and travel and took up a position as sub-editor on Quintessentially magazine. Today, when she's not working to a deadline or tapping away on her debut novel, she can be found lunching with fellow freelancers on the Kings Road.
